time for sportsday. hello and welcome to sportsday, with me lizzie greenwood—hughes and ben mundy. the headlines this evening... city back on top. they replace liverpool, for the moment, after a lunchtime win at fulham. but huddersfield are down, after two years at the top table they'll be in the championship next season. saracens run in seven tries against glasgow warriors to reach the semi—finals of the champions cup. and ferrari are back on form in bahrain, qualifying on the front row of the grid for sunday's race. also coming up on the programme... we look ahead to tomorrow's old firm — the first for neil lennon on his return to celtic.
thanks forjoining us, on what has been an important day in the premier league. more on huddersfield's relegation injust a moment, first, manchester city are back on top. they cruised past struggling fulham who've now lost eight games in a row. pep guardiola's side go a point ahead of liverpool who play tomorrow. adam wild was watching. second from top again second from bottom, division between both sides could scarcely be greater. that perilous position laid out in black and white, manchester city, such for yet more silverware helped by a flash of silver. but putting the champions ahead, within the opening minute. the last thing they needed was to get their visit is for the opportunity, yet there it was, in this place sergio making it. the primary leagues top score ruthless
and showing little sympathy. the manager apparent anxiety was for the afternoon at least, misplaced. such was the comfort and control they could afford to continue at that key players. but whilst margin of victory could perhaps should have been greater than the gap between the sides, clearer than ever. relegation a little closer, manchester city top of the table once more. in thisa in this a little bay at their pace, you read them in terms of the players who stayed here who are on holiday, and we are a national team ina holiday, and we are a national team in a different way and the rhythm is an hour away, but therefore the effort was there, and delightful because this game is tricky. 12:30pm ona because this game is tricky. 12:30pm on a saturday night sunny day, you know, this kind of situation is unusual. that's why unsatisfied and delighted the guys and with what they have done stop live i think anyone standing in
my position would understand the challenges ahead and i include the top teens and not really. it proved that way, difficult at times against a world class players and a well coached team, so obviously at times i felt we did all right, they were bits of the games we are pleased with, and you can see it in early goal, you know it can be daunting really. and is at the big screen to talk about this. so scott parker's fulham in trouble but still up, unlike huddersfiled. making that premier league history they don't want to. they have indeed. the writing has been on the wall for a number of weeks — if not months — now. but huddersfield will play in the championship next season these fans had their eyes on other results today — they didn't go their wayjan siewert‘s side confirened to relegation because of wins for southampton and burnley. and, ultimately their
defeat to crystal palace at selhurst park where it finished 2—nil roy hodgson's side taking the lead through a luka milivojevic penalty — and then patrick van aanholt. here's a stat. it means huddersfield equal the record for the earliest premier league relegation. only derby county — in 2008 — have previously been relegated from the premier league in march. at the minute to be fair, this event took so much energy especially, especially in that. yeah, and if you see the season retrospectively, it was the front, and at the back not enough to stay in the best leak in the wild. but i think we've got now, the wild. but i think we've got now, the task and job to end the season as good as he can. personally in life there is success and failure they belong together so we asa
and failure they belong together so we as a cloud popular to learn out of the failure in things we did run the season we definitely have to learn and we are in our best way to solve it. and i think the performance proved it in la, and as isaid in performance proved it in la, and as i said in the end, we have to go through all the details which had beenin through all the details which had been in the season and come back stronger. then says they have to look at what went wrong there so much to look at i don't want to be rude but there is. theyjust never really got going. conceded nine goals in theirfirst two premier league games 3—nil at home to chelsea... 6—1 away at manchester city their first win in the premier league didn't come until 5th of november — when they beat fulham david wagner then left as manager injanuary — with the club bottom of the league. jan siewert came in... no instant bounce though. he didn't get his first league win ‘til the end of february and these numbers here say it all. three wins, only 5 draws and you can't win if you don't score they've only scored 18 in 32 premier league games.
let's go back to the other end of the table, and ole gunar solksjear marked his permanent role with a win, albeit a lucky one against watford. they were very lucky. but they got the three points as he becomes permanent manager. he's got that three year contract in hand... all smiles and, united returning to winning ways at old trafford this afternoon, following defeats at arsenal and wolves before the international break. they were made to work by watford though, far from their fluent best luke shaw combined well with marcus rashford for the opening goal, anthony martial doubling their lead in the second half watford scored a late goal to give it a nervy end. but it finsihed 2—1 ole gunnar solskjaer up and running as the permanent manchester united boss, with three points. he's been talking to elidh barber. what do you think was lacking perhaps today? zip, urgency, 10096
fitness because we did have players out there that are still a little bit away from being 100% 50, but it helped a lot. would it put you back in the top four, it's the goal at the end of season to finish, said that start stop live definitely, setting games left in the season for us setting games left in the season for us and we just got to make sure we get 15% —— us and we just got to make sure we get 15% —— going to be enough. so, let's take a closer look at some of the other premier league results today. we've heard burnley and southampton won. burnley beating wolves, 2—nil. southampton winning by one goal at brighton. the other result to mention. wes morgan and jamie vardy on target as leicester beat bournemouth. this evening's game was at the london stadium. hosts west ham losing 2—nil to everton. so that's today's premier league news. back to you lizzie, for the rest of the football. leeds united are up to second in the championship, closing the gap on norwich to 5 points after coming from behind twice against millwall. two goals from pablo
hernandez as they won 3—2. norwich are currettly in action against middlesbourgh. that was one to them. the pick of the other results were aston villa's win over blackburn which gifts them a play off position and derby are also top 6 after a huge win over 3rd from bottom rotherham. sheffield united stay third despite losing to bristol city and at the foot of the table — an important win for bolton away at qpr and bottom of the table ipswich lost at home to hull.— they're now 8 points adrift at the bottom. in the scottish premiership. hearts are back—up to fifth after a second—half comeback against aberdeen. craig levein's men are just two points and one place behind the dons now. st mirren also came from a goal down against fellow strugglers dundee to move off the bottom of the table. they were wins as well for kilmarnock and motherwell. meanwhile, neil lennon takes charge of his first old firm derby since returning to celtic tomorrow. they could open up a 13 point gap on second—placed rangers with victory.
their manager, steven gerrard, wants his rangers team to embrace the hostile atmosphere at celtic park, asjonathan sutherland reports. ranges victory in the last one for derby, at the end of december look like really get a real title race and scotland. they preferred that gerard side level with celtic at the top of the table. three month sign, it's all very different. celtic are now ten points clear of the rangers, as they go into sunday's third from darby of the season and how big would the wind be? honourable, but not in you know, again we are talking hypothetically. it would be a hammer blow they went 13 points with setting games, that's a huge margin. we will take that. a win would be hugely significant for
celtic on a number of levels, and their quest for eight titles in a row. but also the quest for a a historic chapel trouble, it's important for me a line in the managerfor celtic important for me a line in the manager for celtic until the summer, after that, it's up in the air as a success for him is imperative, but what about his counterpart? steven gerrard? the former what about his counterpart? steven gerrard ? the former liveable what about his counterpart? steven gerrard? the former liveable captain under no illusions, gerard saying... when you listen to them speaking after the first and he wasn't happy with the first high performance particularly with the one on celtic and they cannot second half and perform better, he learned from that, going into the game where the team is outstanding. as always, and his fixture, nothing is guaranteed.
to rugby union... scottish hopes in the european champions cup have ended, after both edinburgh and glasgow were knocked out at the quarterfinal stage. edinburgh were beaten by munster at murrayfield in the days first game — while glasgow were dispatched by saracans. the bbc‘s rugby correspondent chris jones is at allianz park. this was another vintage european performance echoes of 2016 and 2017 when they won the champions cap, baby glass got 56 points set up a cost for meeting with munster, my from the park in the moment but let's find out how munster reached the stage by filing past edinburgh isa the stage by filing past edinburgh is a story of a game from jen. the scots had a likely disappointing six nations cloud at rugby in better shape. two sides in the quarterfinals for the first time. ed and brad threw themselves at months to fight court of an hour, but no avail before giving away a needless penalty. people of the first to respond, and he breezed through u nco ntested.
respond, and he breezed through uncontested. munster have one of the best defence in europe. that put to the task i failed as chris died over it -- the task i failed as chris died over it —— died over, forfirst top ended in10-7 it —— died over, forfirst top ended in10—7 had edinburgh it —— died over, forfirst top ended in 10—7 had edinburgh adventist penalties exchanged after the break, as the momentum. and ember pressed tracking at munster, but to the defence held firm in ten minutes to 90, defence held firm in ten minutes to go, they broke through and they registered the second score of the afternoon. the try was swiftly converted to getting irish side a four point buffer, all are nothing for edinburgh, they ran out of stea m. for edinburgh, they ran out of steam. munster move into semi once again. onlya steam. munster move into semi once again. only a few weeks ago that a scottish team produce one of the greatest comebacks and write history, but that was never going to be repeated today. glasco did * not the blocks with an early try, but that was as good as a guide for that visitors ruthless and powerful, precise staff on saracens, escort
seven tribes all, the blocks with an early try, but that was as good as a guide for that visitors, ruthless and powerful, precise staff on saracens, they scored seven tribes in all, liam a couple while england was in top form, he scored one of the tries and was named at nine of the tries and was named at nine of the match. they had to reshuffle the backline with owen farrell on this and again as he awaited the birth of his first child, but alec stepped into fly half and alex kicked 21 points as it saracens didn't miss a trick. munster it is great country, but on this evidence, i try to imagine that final city council next month without the man. of the other quarter finals... the all french affair between racing and toulouse is tomorrow and there was a thrilling all—irish game with champions leinster hosting ulster in dublin. it's just finished 21—18 to leinster. it was ulster who took an early lead when leinster fly—half ross byrne's kick was charged down, allowing kieran treadwell to gather the loose ball and slide over. however byrne made amends five minutes later, feigning a pass outside before diving
over to score himself, although he missed the conversion. 13—11 to ulster at half—time leinster regained the lead when adam byrne charged down the wing before luke marshall answered back for ulster. but then a limping ross byrne kicked leinster back into the lead and they hung on to win 21—18. still to come on sportsday... callum's commonwealth collapse comeback. hawkins hopes to prove a point at the london marathon — his first since missing out on a medal in australia. i was just i wasjust guided i was just guided it, i wasjust guided it, it i was just guided it, it felt like i wasjust guided it, it felt like i just missed one of the best opportunities that i would ever get to get a meadow. so for a major championship. ferrari have a new superstar in the making as charles leclerc helped put their disappointing opening race in australia behind them with pole for tomorrow's bahrain grand prix ahead of his team
mate on the front row. so if sebastian vettel thought his biggest rival this season would be world champion lewis hamilton, he might be wrong. nick parrott reports. charles has come of age, just two yea rs charles has come of age, just two years ago he was raising a formula to her, now at 21 years and 166 days, he's the second youngest driver to play and pull in formula 1. he impressed jennifer season earning a move to ferrari. he placed a four—time world championship boston during the opening race of the season and now he put his team—mate in the shade. child's top time sheets without —— with qualifying enter the first run, he equalled the track record and he had one attempt to beat it, but failed. to rub salt in the wound, he batted it to claim that record as his own. he is leading as quickly as exciting. in the last race i was not
very with my qualifying mistakes and two and three, i really worked hard to try not to the same mistakes here. and yeah, seems i did quite —— we did quite a good job. and yet come extremely happy. as well as battle behind them, louis templeton is third on the grid. blood like he did such an incrediblejob congratulations to him it's close between he and sebastian and last slapped him in time there, but that's fine the whole game, so tomorrow is more important day, and it'll be interesting to see how he does and it'll be a good fight. charles will be helping the too busy battling from claiming the rent —— win. let's check some of today's other main sports stories... in formula one's feeder series — f2 — mick schumacher picked up points on debut... mick — the son of seven time f1 champion michael — made a final lap pass to put him up to eighth in the formula two race bahrain. that means he'll start tomorrow's
sprint race on pole. adam yates remains 2nd in the tour of catalunya. he finished in the main bunch on the penultimate stage as australian michael matthews took a narrow sprint victory on the line. racing's flat season is officially underway — and auxerre won the first big race — the lincoln handicap at doncaster. ridden by james doyle the 5—2 favourite looks a star of the future. and hellen obiri has become the first woman to win outdoors, indoors, and cross—country world individual titles at a senior level. the kenyan won the women's race at the world cross country championships in denmark. joshua cheptegei became the first ugandan to win the senior men's title. there has been a big upset in the final of the women's miami open former world number one karolina pliskova losing to twenty—two year old australian ashleigh barty. john pakey was watching.
women's tennis whistle full lead household names in the current top ten has a less familiar field. caroline is a former number one, went to the max knowing victories as a back—up to second rankings. in a way, it was australian ashley, she was clocked at the ranking points andi was clocked at the ranking points and i waited a final miami, she knew she had been a top ten when that new standings announced on monday whatever result. she'd struck first breaking the and pounded early on. it was not clear cut, ashley wrote back to stretching the opponent level, and the tie—break, she showed dominance to winning. second set began with battle of attrition, to 12 minutes to settle the first game we saw her break to serve. it was an advantage to build on, after breaking her again, she took the second set to claim the title and a new name and the limits top ten. while, in the mens draw, roger federer will face john isner in the final in miami tomorrow. federer thrashed 18 year—old
dennis shapov—olov in straight sets, to tee up the final which federer is looking forward too. i know what to expect, that he will not miss 90 cents. he's got an amazing serve, i went to the best in the game, forever, so it's like to play against him. the last time i played against him was that tough one, big fan of his, he's got i really enjoyed watching them play i know some guys. you enjoy it? i honestly love it i like to watch big service to see dale ace every second or third point for me it's exciting because it is like a penalty shoot out, and soccer, so it's in tennis as well i actually enjoy it for me, i'll be at the goalie and on sunday i try my best and i'll try to get many balls back as possible and hope we have a good match i'm excited to play him because he's had a tough match against the it's and it was
awesome performance. match against the it's and it was awesome performancelj match against the it's and it was awesome performance. i love that analogy. earlier we spoke to us tennisjournalist and we have to back it upset that her. the interesting thing about this is he was rambling in the interview about how he loves big service in all this, interview about how he loves big service in allthis, but interview about how he loves big service in all this, but lots of nonsense he was saying that, but he has not played is near and three and half years, and i look to see when the last time was that he played eisner was the other giants serve now, i guess to he has a great re cord now, i guess to he has a great record and i had been almost four years, so record and i had been almost four years, so he might like watching the big service but he has not had re ce nt big service but he has not had recent experience playing against them physically, he's a marble physically, he looks healthy and fastenal of the other thing is he's competitive so i think the match against him last night was proof of that because i feel as though he almost doubled to play the young guys, especially. and more often
than not, with rare exceptions he beats them, so he likes challenges and you can afford to fly around the world in a private jet and bring all his kids and his wife is fully on board. so why not keep doing it i mean what's the alternative just sit around and take your kids to school and a few charity things? i mean there isn't going to be anything in his life that the answer is whiting asa his life that the answer is whiting as a few charity things? i mean there isn't going to be anything in his life that the answer is whiting as adrenaline seeking and finance what he does right now. staff speaking to us earlier. to golf... rory mcilroy has been beaten to a place in the world matchplay quarter—finals by tiger woods. this was the first time they'd played each other in matchplay... woods kept his nerve in the deteriorating conditions in austin texas to win by 2&1 after 17 holes. he'll play lucas berry—gard later today. the round of 16 wasn't kind to the british players left. world number twojustin rose was beaten 2 up by kevin na. the american will face open champion francesco molinari, who took out britain's paul casey by five and four earlier today.
imean i mean it's hard work really for them. here's one for you, if you're currently in training for the london marathon injust under a month's time. i'm not but i've been to before and so have you last year when it was hot. time in a moment. among the elite runners will be great britain's callum hawkins? who'll be running his first marathon since he collapsed in exhaustion at last year's commonwealth games. he's been training at altitude in america — and our olympic sports reporter david mcdaid has been to meet him... in the snow covered hills of arizona, callan is clocking at the miles. it's a very different scene from a year ago, and the sweltering heat of australia. this is a real distress. he then headed by the side
of the road and i hope they can get someone of the road and i hope they can get someone to him quickly. a little more than a mile from becoming commonwealth champion, the scots that bound to the extreme conditions. is like going into a car that has been into heat all day it just hit me, last thing i remember was putting every ounce of effort to try and get back on a fee, and just not being able to. it was as if i was really drunk. can you start to reflect, what did you think about that whole experience? reflect, what did you think about that whole experience ?|j reflect, what did you think about that whole experience? i was guided, it felt like ijust missed one of the best opportunities i would get to get a medal out of something of a naturist championship —— it got to do. he hasn't taken another marathon since that race, and he hopes training at 7000 feet above sea level he can get a good account of himself when he makes his come back in london. has the body now and how are you writing? i read an -- i did are you writing? i read an -- i did a session yesterday to high altitudes a very good. about 2000 metres above sea level you feel a lot better. when you look at the
london marathon is a comeback how do you think you will feel when you're at the starting? proving to myself it still there and that australia hasn't done any damage, don't want to be known for the boy who fell overl to be known for the boy who fell over i want to be known for the guy who winds metals and winds quicktime. london a chance to reset and make new memories and perhaps banning some old ones too. that's all from sportsday. he'll be clearly writing quicker than as but your time was. 3.45. that is a good one, it's too embarrassing. that's it sports day. will have more for the evening, deny. —— good night.
